I've had runs like this before, but it's always been in a platoon. Crazy...



Game #10 was an awesome comeback, and a testament to why you never try to cap out when you have the lead. Replay:

Just wait for the Cent Mk 7/1 it all changes in an instant.

I was the same in my Cent Mk. 1 - I could do no wrong in it and just could not wait for the tier 9 version.

If I take it out once a week, its only because I miss my Mk. 1

Good run though. Gratz.

That would be disappointing. I'm still running the middle engine upgrade in the Cent 1, so I don't expect to suffer the 7/1 mobility loss. And after operating the T-54 and the M46, the thought of full APCR at tier 9 has given high hopes. I guess time will tell...

I enjoy the higher tier british tanks.....they explode nicely when my arty shells land on them.

I've noticed!

I didn't post the results from the Getsome account, but I had a similar streak there. Side effect of all that silliness: apparently I'm now purple-lite...



OK, done bragging. I need to take the bike out this weekend...

It only updates once a day, and only when you query the page. Mine stay up-to-date because of the associated forum.

TBH, I like the noobmeter site more; more info in their database.

I decided to continue with the 7/1 because I played one on test maxed out and fell in love with the L7 Royal Ordinance gun.

And it really IS a maneuverable tank for its size with the top engine.
Just getting there, SHOULD NOT be such a hardship (yah I know go play a Lorraine... (been there, done that too and own the t-shirt))

But I think my mistake was trying the Leopard Prototype A and Leopard 1 on the test also.

I spent two full days Cent 7/1 - Proto A - Cent 7/1 - Proto A back and forth back and forth and ultimatley the Proto A / Leo 1, won the decision process.

At tiers 9 and 10 armor is something to no longer worry too much about, and a tank that can only do 40 kph down hill or after an extended drive in a straight line versus one that hits 50KPH NOW and then the last 15 in a fast three count is a better tank (in my hands) than pokie pony.

Same gun at tier 9 Both use British Royal Ordinance L7 then for the Brit it remains the same to tier 10 and the German it is the upgraded L7A3

So I keep playing the Cent 7/1 while I grind the up to its replacement Prototype A - but once I own the Proto A and its top gun I retrain the 7/1 crew back to a Cent Mk. 1

So I got the middle gun on the Tortoise, and it's playable now. 4 second reload, really good pen, mediocre damage. 2000hp and it's a hard tin can to open up, so that lets me park myself for some serious rapid-fire tier 9 sniping.

@ Audaciter - I have everything upgraded on the Inden-Panzer and 5K or so in toward the 152K needed to get in to the Prototype-A

@ Smithy - It took me longer than I should to start a Brit TD line, but I am having a ball with the AT8 at the moment. My crew just hit their first 100% training so I'm most likely going to train repair for everyone and keep the mounted repair kit.

Good to hear the Tort is fun.

I'm still one good day of grinding away from even unlocking the Indien-Panzer.
